Thendo Sharon a twitter users has given an advise bordering on the issue of outrageous bride prices.
Sharon adjured ladies to speak up for their suitor when he shows up at her family home for the introductory rites.
According to Sharon, the traditional intention of bride price is not for the intending bride family to better their standard of living
The lady also apprised that if women do not speak up in defence of their men when they are given outrageous lists to fulfill, then they would enter a marriage full of loans and debts.
In her words;
”Ladies, bride price was never meant to enrich your parents and your uncles who don’t even know your birthday.
If you don’t speak up for your man, you will enter a marriage full of loans and debt caused by your own family. Fight for your marriage!
”Debts cause divorce and a very unhealthy home with a unhappy marriage”
